    Wait! Something’s wrong with this picture. As with other discrepancies, that slot is aleady filled with what I consider, just by the previews, to be a rather silly show called “Would You Fall For That”.

    That slot’s been filled so something’s wrong here.

    And no, BTW, I’m not going to bother watching “Would You Fall…..”. I actually found “What Would You Do?” to be tedious after a few shows. They were just WAY too obvious. That’s probably why persons stopped reacting in the filming. For one, they often use the same, very recognizable actors. Two, the scripting became mundane and predictable. I fully expect the same from “Would You Fall…”. The premiers are even boring.

    KEEP THE NEIGHBORS!!!! Put them in a PROPER time/day slot! Friday nights is guaranteed cancellation BUT it’s quite obvious that given the new show, that “The Neighbors” is not even in a slot at all.

    This perturbs me. I can think of a lot better things to do than play musical timers.

    All reality TV shows should be cancelled, and good shows should be included. Bring back some good ones: The Gates, 666 Park Avenue, Brothers and Sisters, anything with Vanessa Williams.

      YIPES!!!! You’re right! Friday night slots are FULL of other shows that don’t repeat. That’s a TERRIBLE time slot.

      As much as I love this show (it’s one of my VERY ABSOLUTE favorites), someone made a REALLY poor decision.

      I’m in marketing and know that when purchasing “media” (commercials) decisions are based on viewers per thousand and if there isn’t enough commercial time purchased to pay for the show it will go “poof”! DARN! I LOVE THIS SHOW!

      Shame shame shame on the team making the decision to move it to that slot!!!
